Editor's Trip: Summer Adventures in Whistler
One editor's adventurous summer getaway in Whistler.
Though Whistler's majestic mountain views and glacial lakes are a serene summer backdrop, I, like most, didn’t come here for a lazy mountain retreat, but for a taste of adventure. During my recent weekend getaway, I pushed myself physically and mentally with adrenaline-fueling and fear-inducing rock climbing and downhill mountain experiences. I even punctuated the days’ feats with equally adventurous (if less scary) ways to unwind: Swedish spas and ice-cold vodka rooms. Whatever adventure you find yourself trying at Whistler, take a deep breath and look up. You don’t want to miss the view.
